What is the groove merchant project? Groove merchant is a unique project funded by Southampton city council (music education services) and is a scheme designed to select the very best musician'sattending schools in the city aged 13 to 16 and through a programme of individual tuition and group rehearsals develop bands to performance (gigging) standard in the rock and popular music genre.
I have always enjoyed rhythm from an early age. Initially tapping along to music in the car, air drumming to Bon Jovi songs and watching great drummers perform, I realised that drums were theinstrument for me. My parents bought me my first drum kit when I was 10 and I was soon to learn that drums would be a lifelong passion.
At my recently refurbished music studio in Southampton, I offer tuition on my baby grand piano or keyboards, to students ranging in ability from absolute beginners and onwards. My teaching philosophyis to guide and support students to play recognisable and enjoyable music at an early stage. To support this, I have compiled my own arrangements of popular pieces that are easier to read and play.
